If you would like to volunteer at Ada Women’s Shelter and Young Women’s Empowerment Centre, you must be age 18 or older and have undergone Adas basic training in women’s shelter operations and the empowerment of women and teen girls. After that, you will have an introduction to one of the work groups at Ada together with another volunteer worker until you feel ready to work by yourself. The basic training course is held in swedish. The course normally starts in autumn and is made up of around 8 sessions, where we meet once a week for 2-3 hours. The course is held in the evening.

As a volunteer, you can for example manning the teen chat for girls or participate in activities with women and children living in our emergency shelter. Volunteers can also get involved in association work by joining the board.If you are a law student, after undergoing the basic training you can help to man our legal helpline, answering the legal questions of women seeking help there.

As a volunteer, you will be given the opportunity to take advanced training courses in various disciplines, participate in member appreciation activities during the year and take part in group supervision.
